Query: NC_016812:3641786 Sinorhizobium fredii HH103, complete genome Lineage: Sinorhizobium fredii; Sinorhizobium; Rhizobiaceae; Rhizobiales; Proteobacteria; Bacteria General Information: This organism, much like other Rhizobia, forms a symbiotic relationship with a leguminous plant, such as soybean, cowpea or pigeon pea. Expression of nodulation genes results in production of a nodulation signal which the plant cell recognizes inducing root nodule formation. The plant cell provides carbon compounds for the bacterium to grow on.

General Information: It produces a water-soluble extracellular polysaccharide that forms a biopolymer useful for a wide range of applications to textile printing, oil and adhesive industries. This organism belongs to the Beijerinckiaceae family, which includes both methanotrophic (bacteria able to oxidize methane) and nonmethanotrophic species (like Beijerinckia indica subsp. indica). Sequencing of strains from this family presents an ideal opportunity for a comparative genomic study into the evolution and biochemistry of obligate methanotrophy.
